"Melamut also noted that at the event, the company will discuss about cooperation with PC makers such as Quanta Computer, Compal Electronics, Wistron, Inventec, Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) and First International Computer (FIC), and expects the event will help the makers understand Ubuntu's advantages.
